I have to say, I was blown away by both the building and the exhibition. How lucky we are to have this on our doorstep. The exhibition is free and there's a coffee shop/restaurant on site so it makes for a lovely morning out, with or without the kids.
I have been channelling my monochrome lots over the past few days...today I added some red and a very old M&S sixties style coat that always gets a few outings each winter..
|Black/White Spotty Coat - M&S (similar here)|
Black Jumper - Warehouse (similar here)
Red Wool Mini Skirt - M&S (similar here)
White Shirt - H&M (similar here)
Black Ankle Boots - Moda in Pelle
Thermal Tights - Primark
I do love this skirt but was lamenting the fact that I don't have many shorter tops to wear with it. But then I had a brainwave - why not wear it with a longer jumper tucked in? So that's what we have today - it's a Warehouse tunic knit that in fact isn't much shorter than the skirt so as well as being an ingenious way to make an outfit, it also kept me extra warm for the day!
Now despite the snow forecast for this week, I'm pressing ahead with a competition to win a lovely spring-like top from Hot Squash. Watch this space - I'll be posting details very soon.....and here's hoping it helps to lift the mood and the temperature. Keep warm! x
